Hi Folks

Can you kindly name some tools which you have problems with handling or operating in order to do general household maintenance?

My nephew is doing a project at school on DIY maintenance tools and problems which ordinary people face when handling or operating them.

Thanks in advance

Understanding the weight of the tool and how the torque affects the grip.

Keeping electric screwdriver bits seated in the screw slot.

Getting accurate measurements with a tape measure.

This kind of overlaps with "ergonomics" and "product liability". And some garden cutting tools manage to pinch my skin and do not stay locked closed.
